I am thinking of throwing my 11 year old a little party for finishing the 5th grade and moving into elementary school. And when I say thinking of doing it, I mean that I have invited the guest and I am planning out the cake that I am going to make and everything. He has worked hard, kept up his grades and done really great despite having to deal with his dad and I divorcing, both of us remarrying, his dad having a kid with his step-mom, and then having to deal with some major issues with his step-mom that have just gotten harder as the years have gone by. I want him to know that we are proud of him, as does his step-dad and grandparents, but I don't want to go too overboard either. I will do the same for my other two kids at this point in their lives because they have had to deal with the same things through out the years, but they were not as old as odest ds and they don't remember everything, such as the divorce, as clearly. The guest list consist of his grandparents on both sides and his dad and step-mom. I just wanted it to be small and the people that love him the most in life, although I am sure that one person will not be here.
